I have gotten really far behind on these blog award acceptance thingies! I am incredibly touched and grateful whenever I am nominated for an award by any of my fellow bloggers so please do not think that the lack of response from me means that I do not appreciate that someone has taken the time to read my scattered thoughts and opinions! I am humbled that anyone would consider my little corner of the blogosphere award-worthy. I love you guys! <3
I was nominated for the Beautiful Blogger Award in November by a blogger I really admire – Diana @ Brilliantly Novel. Please go and check out her blog – you will not be disappointed! Big thanks to Diana for thinking of me.
The rules for this award are as follows:
1. Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo.
2. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them.
3. Nominate 7 (yes, only seven) other bloggers and say a little something about them.
I really like how simple this award is and the fact that it encourages the awarder (is that a word??? – I think I may have just pulled that out of my derrière!!) to say a little something about their nominees which I think is a lovely idea!
Here are my nominations:
1. April @ A Well Read Woman
I adore April’s blog – I am always over there! I love her reviews and her feature Way Back Wednesday. April didn’t always blog strictly about books – some of her older posts cover a wider range of topics. I particularly enjoyed reading her post on the Jamison family who went missing in 2009.
2. Jackie @ She Reads A Lot (formerly She Reads She Blogs)
Jackie is a fellow Maggie Stiefvater fangirl! I love reading her reviews and discussion posts. I think Jackie has a very fresh and distinctive voice and I love how enthusiastic she is over her favourite books – I always seem to get caught up in the excitement too!
3. Andie @ TheBookHeap
Andie is a blogger I have followed for quite a while. I really love reading her book reviews and also her discussion posts which I find to be incredibly thought-provoking – I very often find myself nodding along to what she is saying! I feel bad for not commenting on her blog more often but the comments would probably just be me vehemently agreeing so perhaps they would not add a lot to the discussion lol. 😉
4. Emily @ Books & Cleverness
Emily’s blog is one I really admire. I am more than a little bit envious at how pretty her blog is – she is an absolute genius with graphics! Her content is just as amazing. <3
5. Jocelyn @ 52 Letters In The Alphabet
I have spent a lot of time over at Jocelyn’s blog recently – I love it when I find new bloggers to discuss my thoughts on books and various other stuff. Jocelyn covers a wide range of topics on her blog and I have greatly enjoyed reading through her content.
6. Galit @ Coffee N’ Notes
I honestly cannot say enough good things about this blogger! I really, really enjoy her blog and think she is one of the sweetest people I have met online.
7. Karen @ Confetti and Curves
I only recently discovered Karen’s blog but I love her posts on beauty products, makeup, wedding tips, and fashion. I particularly enjoy her Behind The Blog feature and I have discovered a lot of other fantastic blogs through these posts.
It goes without saying that I would encourage anyone reading this to check out all of the above blogs. They are all amazing! I am so glad to have so many beautiful blogs to follow!
There is absolutely no obligation for anyone to accept this award if they do not wish to (or if they have been nominated before). I just wanted to let all of you know how much I admire your blogs and appreciate the time you take out of your day to provide such awesome content!
bye for now!
**EDIT: I will be doing a couple more of these awards posts over the next couple of weeks – I did say I was behind LOL.**
